I was thinking about this the other day. I think it woud cool if you could talk to the whole group with whom you're riding via wireless helmet radios. Don't know if it's possible.

Yea Tony... had a question about that pic... you do know that most phones have storage modules for music now... Why don't you just put music in your phone and listen to it via blue tooth instead of that MP3 player???

Is $ 179.00 a decent price ?? :confused:
Yes, they usually go for over 200$ for that system. Google it and you'll see... if you can get it cheaper, jump all over that thing :rolleyes:

Yes, I have 4 gig mem chip in my phone, but this is just a touch away from changing the track while riding..
I keep my phone in it's holster..
simple math.. reach up, push a button next track..

How I envy you. Fortunately my wife doesn't want to ride my bike, but she still insists on living in the same house with me.

The other option is a helmet with it built in.... Viper RS V121. Apparently, the latest model now allows helmet to helmet comms as well as hooking up with other bluetooth devices, i.e. mp3... mobile... gps voice directions.. etc. Previous model Viper RS V101 does not do helmet to helmet.

Charge from flat takes 4 hours... 2 hours talk time.. 100 hours standby.

It has an internal sun visor, operation is independent from the main visor. Appears to be reasonable quality and the price is comparable with a helmet of similar cost.

Personally , I don't have experience of this helmet but I am considering one or two for myself. They're selling in our shops for GBP £120.. I'd imagine that you may sell for US $100 - $150... maybe a discount if more than one.

I've heard reports that the bluetooth quality in the Viper RS V121 might not be good enough for music and although its supposed to have wind noise canceling technology it may not work well enough above 50mph. But then again you get helmet and bluetooth for basically half of what both would cost separately.

------------------------

Other systems : http://www.starcom1.com - may not be available in USA, however this system has up to 150 metre range, ideal for bike to bike. It may be that the range is what deems it not for sale in USA, not sure.

------------------------

When buying bluetooth devices always check its "Bluetooth Class" this will give you an idea of what to expect distance wise....

Bluetooth Classes and distances:
Class 1 100mW (20dBm) 100 meters
Class 2
2.5mW (4dBm) 10 meters
Class 3
1mW (0dBm) 1 meter

So, if you just want rider <-> pillion.. class 2 will do the job. On the other hand bike <-> bike then class 1.

However, Bluetooth generally can only communicate with one other device at a time, so conferencing is not an option with bluetooth. So if bike <-> many bikes then FM transceivers is the way to go and the price starts creeping up as well.

------------------

Cost, fit for purpose, and quality for the job all need to be considered.

yeah i can invite a female to live in my house but i can also invite her to leave. You just made me realise my ex fiance is moving back down here in one week 2 days. I miss the consistant being able to know there is someone that actually cares feeling, but also like the lack of headaches that come with relationships coming and going.

I have it installed on the full face helmet.. the two speakers are just stuck in the helmet.. like velcro stuck to the lining...
The music is not blasting or anything, you can control that volume separate from the communications volume..
You don't hear the pipes like with a half helmet...

The mic is flexible that allows for placement within the face of the helmet. It is voice activated to establish communications or you can press a button on the side for initiating communications..

I kind of yell "YO" and it kicks in and starts talking.. her music kicks out and comm is established..
I love the thing.. it's great.. or we can just shut up enjoy the ride and listen to our separate tunes...:D

I give it a +10 on the enjoyment ladder...:cool:
